Windows 7: Portable Hard Drives

Portable Hard Drives

I use a few portable USB drives with my Zinwell media player. I safely remove the drive from the player. When I plug in back into the pc, I get a message asking if I want to scan for errors. It does this each time I plug it back into the pc. I had a Seagate player and the same thing happened.

Tried plugging the same drives into an XP pc and the check errors message did not appear. Is this just a Windows 7 thing?

Sounds like you have some security option enabled to scan removable drives. It's not inherent to Windows 7. Check your security suite for the setting.
